In February, PhishLabs launched T2 Spear Phishing Protection, the industry’s first end-to-end spear phishing solution driven by real-world attack intelligence. The company uses insight gained from fighting back against more than 6,000 phishing attacks every month to help organizations proactively condition their employees to recognize and report threats. Those threats are then analyzed in near real-time by the PhishLabs Security Operations Center, which investigates and mitigates the attacks before damage is done.
The company also recently published its 2016 Phishing Trends & Intelligence Report: Hacking the Human, which exposes the murky evolution of a thriving, sophisticated phishing underworld. The report is based on more than one million confirmed malicious phishing sites residing on more than 130,000 unique domains, and the movement of more than 90 threat actor groups actively deploying spear phishing attacks.
